DBA阅读 | 嘿,老爸,给我5000万美元怎么样? 文  /MBA小编2018年07月30日 15:44:08

At the age of 43, Donald Trump was "year for year" the most successful person in the world. (At the age of 44, of course, he was back down to earth again.)

43岁那年,唐纳德·特朗普成为全球年度最成功人士(当然,44岁那年,他又回到了原点)。


Donald is smart, aggressive, personable. In fact, he has all the attributes anyone would ever need to get ahead in the world of business. Read his book The Art of the Deal, and he'll tell you how smart, aggressive, and personable he is.

唐纳德聪明机智、进取心强、风度翩翩。事实上,要在商界出人头地所必备的素质在他身上都可以找到。读一读他撰写的《交易的艺术》,你就会知道此言不虚。


One thing Mr. Trump left out of his book was the critical, make-or-break moment in his life, the moment when he turned to his father, Fred Trump, and asked: "Hey, Dad, how about $50 million?

但是特朗普的书中漏掉了一点,就是他人生道路上那个不成则败的关键时刻。他跑去求助父亲弗雷德·特朗普:嘿,老爸,给我5,000万美元怎么样?”


It doesn't matter how smart you are, how aggressive you are, and how personable you are. You'll do much, much better in life if you look outside yourself and find a horse to ride.

你是否聪明机智、进取心强、风度翩翩,这都无关紧要。不要只盯着自己,你要看看外面,找到一匹好马,你的人生将会精彩纷呈。


Even after Donald Trump was well on his way to the top, he never forgot what made him successful. When he was building his masterpiece, Trump Tower, he didn't neglect to say, "Hey, New York City, how about $50 million in tax abatements?"

即使在唐纳德·特朗普阔步迈向事业的巅峰之后,他也从未忘记过自己成功的秘诀。在建造自己的杰作特朗普摩天大楼时,他没有忘记请求:“嘿,纽约,给我减免5,000万美元的税款如何?”


Malcolm's Forbes father used to say, "Son, what's the answer to ninety-nine questions out of a hundred? Money."

马尔科姆·福布斯的父亲过去常说:“儿子,你知道100个问题中99个问题的答案是什么吗?是钱啊。”


Unlike Malcolm Forbes and Donald Trump, most people weren't born with a golden spoon in their mouths. You probably don't have wealthy parents to turn to. No matter. The principle remains the same. To be a big success in life, you must find a horse to ride.

当然,大多数人都不像马尔科姆·福布斯和唐纳德·特朗普那样,含着金汤匙出生。或许你没有富爸爸和富妈妈可以求助,没关系,这个原则同样适用:要想获得人生的巨大成功,你必须找到一匹可以驾驭的好马。 


"I want to do it myself" 我要自己做

That's what Donald Trump could easily have said. "I want to go out into the world and prove to myself that I can be a big deal. I don't need my dad's money or his line of credit."

唐纳德·特朗普原本可以轻飘飘地说:“我想去闯天下,我要向自己证明,我可以成为一个大人物。我不需要老爸的钱,也不需要他的贷款。”


That's not uncommon. You hear it every day, especially form kids and teenagers. "I want to do it myself" is a daily refrain in most households with kids.

这很正常,你每天都会听到有人这么说,尤其是小孩子和青少年。“我要自己做!”大凡有孩子的家庭,每天都会冒出这句话来。


But you can't be successful all by yourself. Other people make you successful. That's why you have to focus on other people, not yourself.

但是只靠自己是不可能获得成功的,是其他人使得你成功。因此,你必须重点关注他人,而不是自己。


"How do I get to Carnegie Hall?" the tourist asked the hippie. "Practice, brother, practice," replied the hippie.

“我怎么才能去卡内基音乐厅?”游客问嬉皮士。“练习,兄弟,要练习。”嬉皮士答道。


Our advice is just the opposite. Take a taxi.

我们的建议正好相反:叫辆出租车吧。


Taking advantage of the bad things in life善用生活中的不利因素

Donald Trump took advantage of his good fortune to be born in a family with wealth. You can also take advantage of your bad fortune.

唐纳德·特朗普有幸出生在富裕的家庭,他利用了自己的好运。你也可以利用自己的厄运。


Ron Kovic came home from the Vietnam War in a wheelchair. Any previous goals he might have had for his life were left in the jungles of Southeast Asia.

越战结束后,罗恩·科维克(Ron Kovic)坐着轮椅回到了家。不管他曾经制定过什么人生目标,这些目标都留在了东南亚的丛林深处。


Kovic became nationally known for protesting the Vietnam War on the floor of the 1972 Republican National Convention. After publication of his book Born on the Fourth of July, Kovic spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 1976 and served as a delegate in 1988.

科维克曾在1972年的共和党全国大会上抗议越战,因此名扬全美。在他撰写的《生于七月四日》(Born on the Fourth of July)一书出版之后,1976年,科维克在民主党全国大会上发言,并于1988年成为民主党的代表。


His book led to the successful motion picture which he cow rote with director Oliver Stone.

后来,根据他的书拍摄了一部成功的电影,剧本是由他与奥利弗·斯通导演共同撰写的。


"I really feel like one of the luckiest men on the face of the earth," says Ron Kovic. "I've wanted my life face of the earth," says Ron Kovic. "I've wanted my life to stand for something important. I did not want to be thought of simply as someone who came home from a war with an injury, who people as possible with my message."

“我真觉得自己是地球上最幸运的一个人。”罗恩·科维克说,“我希望自己能过上有意义的生活,而不只是被人看成一个倒霉的伤兵、一个可怜虫。我始终希望我的想法能够感染更多的人。”

 

What is success? 什么是成功


What is success? It's whatever you want it to be: money, power, position, recognition. It could be city hall; it could be Carnegie Hall. It could be CEO, CFO, or CIO.

什么是成功?你希望成功是什么它就是什么:金钱、权力、地位、认可。成功可以是市政厅,也可以是卡内基音乐厅;成功可以是首席执行官,也可以是首席财务官或首席信息官。


Success is not mutually exclusive. You don't have to strive for one goal. Money, power, position, recognition, happiness, and friends usually go together.

成功不是相互排斥的。你不必苦苦追寻一个又一个目标,金钱、权力、地位、认可、幸福和友情常常结伴而来。


But all things in moderation. Keep things in perspective. Nobody can make you successful. Only others can do that for you. The Pope doesn't elect himself. Neither does the chairman of the board.

但是凡事都要适度,要正确看待各种事情。没有人能够让你成功,但是其他人的所作所为能够助你成功。教皇不是他自己推选出来的,董事会主席也不是他自己任命的。


If you think this is a cold, crass, and conniving way to look at the game of life, you're right. Cold, crass, conniving, and effective.

如果你觉得这样看待人生这场游戏堪称冷酷、愚钝、阴谋,那么你的感觉没错。冷酷、愚钝、阴谋,但却有效。
